Strawberry has long been loved as a seasonal fruit in spring. However, as the usage of in-door farming method prospered, the sweeter fruits from controlled environment started to overpower the seasonal harvests, making winter the season for strawberry.

For the past few years, Japanese-style strawberry shortcake has been number one strawberry dessert choice in many cafes in Korea. However, French dessert Mille Feuille is slowly emerging as another popular choice at many places.

Here are the most popular cafes in Seoul where you can try the winter delicacy.

Mafia Dessert is definitely the hottest dessert spot in Itaewon, especially when it comes to Mille Feuille. Their Tiramisu is also a popular item on the menu, but perfectly crispy and rightly sweet Strawberry Mille Feuille is on another level.
